Owls attack people - level 2
Owls attacked many people from a Dutch town in recent weeks. The latest victims are two members of a local athletics club.
The birds are protected species, and you must have permission to be allowed to catch them. Until people catch the owls, people can protect themselves with umbrellas.
Difficult words: victim (a person who is attacked), protected species (a type of animal which people must not kill), permission (if you have a permission to do something, you are allowed to do it).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
This news is like from Hitchcock's film The Birds, isn't it?
